Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/18/2014 -- Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder or ADHD is affecting 9.5% of children in the United States. It is a disorder that many parents want to protect their kids from. However, with concerns about giving children pharmaceutical drugs, it seems that many are considering curcumin as a natural alternative.
According to research, the active ingredient in turmeric known as curcumin may have therapeutic properties that can potentially protect children from ADHD. This is in addition to a wide number of health benefits associated with the usage of curcumin.
It is believed that children with ADHD normally have low glutathione reserves, which prevents toxins such as mercury and lead from being flushed out of the body. These toxins have ways of affecting certain brain chemicals that are essential in concentration, attention, and general awareness.
"Experts believe that curcumin can significantly help increase the glutathione levels in the body. This potentially means that children who take curcumin supplements may be able to increase glutathione reserves. Their bodies will be able to flush out the toxins that encourage the development of ADHD," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.
A study published in the Free Radical Biology and Medicine journal measured the effects of curcumin on glutathione depletion. The study suggests that curcumin has potential therapeutic value for neurodegenerative diseases involving significant depletion of glutathione.
ADHD can make children suffer from a variety of symptoms such as restlessness, distractibility, overactivity, poor impulse control, and difficulty focusing. All of these symptoms can be detrimental to a child's academic performance, social skills, and their attitude in dealing with other people. Health professionals recommend that parents should feed their children with food items that can improve brain health.
Curcumin is also one of the most recommended natural supplements for brain health.
